Travel and Visas

Students studying overseas are usually required by their host country to obtain a student visa prior to entry into the country. It is crucial that you familiarize yourself with the requirements and regulations of your chosen host country. The US Department of State (DOS) provides a handy web site (http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1765.html) to link you to different countries' web sites with information on all kinds of things like getting visas and travelling to those countries.

The US Department of State also has helpful information on travel and study abroad. For their students' pages, go to http://studentsabroad.state.gov/. For the main DOS web site, go to http://travel.state.gov/. It is also recommended that students traveling abroad register for the State Department's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Additional information as well as guidelines can be found at https://step.state.gov/step/

All students should register with the US consulate or embassy nearest them. This registration is quick and easy, and makes it possible for the DOS to assist you in case of emergency. Links to the registration can be found on either site.
